Last Eden is an experimental music project by multidisciplinary artist, Aileen Wallace. Wallace is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and sound artist. Last Eden unites her passion for ambient music, improvisation, and sound art using bespoke DIY microphones, cassette recorders, synthesizers, and an array of unusual performance methods, and tools, drawing from both the analog and digital realms. It is through these mediums which she creates immersive and thoughtful sonic worlds, beckoning soundscapes and ethereal saturated tape loops, drones, and guitar swells.
Last Eden performances are rare and intimate experiences, uniquely compelling and evocative, drawing the audience in. Every performance is bespoke and improvised live with shifting dynamics, textures, and sonic planes.
Kristoffer Lislegaard og Leon Muraglia er begge komponister og musikere med flere prosjekter hver for seg. Denne kvelden møtes de på MIR for å gjøre en eksklusiv improvisert gitarkonsert sammen. Det forventes mye pedaler og annet stæsj når disse to møtes for å skape eksperimentell gitarmusikk i sanntid.
NEGATIVLAND – OUR FAVORITE THINGS (2007, 80 minutter).
Negativland’s favorite things become all new moving pictures… This suggestively charming collection of unforgettable collage and classic cut-up entertainment for all ages was created with a crew of 18 other experimental filmmakers from all over the USA… Our Favorite Things is a collaborative project that takes a striking visual leap into the same legally gray area that Negativland has been exploring with sound since 1980…
Negativland are a thought-provoking, (even) humorous sound collage band from the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of the notorious incidents they have been involved in form the basis of some of the videos you will see.
Most of the 20 pieces are audio collages made in the Cold War 80s, soft drink 90s, and up to 2005. The visual material was made later, in 2007. There is some stuff that involves audio and video being sampled simultaneously, however.
